Spanish Children


Published 1964


Here we witness the activities of a boy and his sister during harvest time in the Andalucian mountain village of Álora, 40km north of Málaga, in Spain, showing their life at home, at school, in the village plaza and in the orchards and fields. This whitewashed village with steep cobblestone streets was formerly home to Cervantes, and reputedly the birthplace of the Malagueñas style of flamenco music. The film depicts a life that may no longer exist in southern Spain, and ends with a performance of a lively young flamenco dancer.

The film is the subject of a research project archived at Málaga's Museo Carmen Thyssen, and includes the the reflections (in Spanish) of Paca Pérez, who played Paquita in the film, and who provides her perspective on the filming.
